This is why you cant trust women, even when theyre mouth is closed theyre still lying to you

you do realize that this is really hurtful right?
i did not do this to show how i am ‘lying’ to men or anyone, it’s not about how you, as a man, should feel about it - it’s about myself. 
to me your statement sounds as if the left side of this picture is something awful or horrible. and no, it’s not. it is my face - with and without makeup. and whether i chose to wear it or not is MY AND JUST MY decision. and when i do, i do it for myself - so that i feel good about myself - not for you.

i think what pisses me the MOST about that comment, is that the beauty standard was literally created by men, and is perpetuated by the patriarchal society that we live in because it’s a fantasy, because all women were made to be part of this fantasy. it’s not our fault that the attractiveness we display is judged solely on how well we wear makeup, because no one looks like that. even with ‘natural’ makeup, nO ONE LOOKS LIKE THAT. men and women are attracted to faces that do not exist. how fucked up is that?
a guy once said in passing that it was necessary for his girlfriend to wear makeup, and it just blows my mind that he wouldn’t be attracted to a natural women’s face. despite how they look without makeup, because it’s not as “perfect,” as enhanced, the way women “should look,” as it is with makeup. we see men as attractive without makeup, but when we look at women without makeup? it’s shameful, it’s ugly, she hasn’t ‘put her face on.’ we see ‘attractive’ men as attractive despite them having the same flaws as women: under eye circles, thick eyebrows, uneven skin coloring, et cetera. its the fact that we are literally told to believe that our bodies, unlike those of attractive men, are not good enough. we’re told no woman will ever be good enough. 
i think it scares men how closely women look like them. not because men think other men are ugly, but because when you look like someone, you identify more with them. it kills the fantasy. women become human, real, people who have body oder and fart. they’re “ugly” without makeup because they’re no longer these freakish dolls that grow zero body hair and whose cheekbones are always defined.
cosmetics for women is a HUGE industry. women’s beauty is a commodity. it’s a thing that can be bought and sold. chris hemsworth wakes up every morning and looks like sun shines out of his ass. while the op in the picture above has to spend a ridiculous amount of money and time literally redefining her face so that she and everyone else will think of her as attractive. 
this comment-er calls the op a liar when him and people like him created and perpetuate the reason for its existence. he’s metaphorically punching himself in the face.

i was going to respond but i think the above comment is just spot on and i cant add much to it
i completely loathe the fact that women are often branded deceitful and liars because they have chosen to wear makeup. oh my fuck its just ugh

I usually ask people who think women are “liars for wearing makeup” if they walk around naked, because by their logic clothing is lying, too.

She can only carry one man’s child at a time, but you can knock up as many bitches as you want. That’s why they’re all worthless and replaceable to us, but every cock means the whole world to them. People have known it since the dawn of time. Bitches have known it too.

HAHAHA. Yes, you’re right, women can only carry one man’s child at a time. Men can fertilize many at a time. But you DO realize that that’s actually why nature treats MEN as the more DISPOSABLE sex, right?
It’s (part of the reason) why women live longer. Men have a harder time surviving throughout all stages of life. Even in the womb, boys are more likely to have problems and/or be miscarried. 150 boys are conceived per every 100 girls, but by the time of birth, it’s roughly 1 to 1.

"Women may have a biological advantage because the female role in reproduction is vital to survival - not only do women give birth, but they nurse their babies and care for them during their early years. Men’s role in reproduction is limited and, for that reason, longevity in men may not be as vital to the continuation of the species.”"Being male is now the single largest demographic risk factor for early mortality in developed countries."
Although men are physically stronger, women seem to have better immunity etc. and survive for longer periods of time, even in the womb.
The woman has to survive 9 months of pregnancy, plus (evolutionarily) a few months of breastfeeding. A man can just drop dead right after intercourse, but the baby would be born just fine.
If you had 1 man and 10 women, you can have 10 kids a time. If you have 10 men and 1 woman, good luck. You need more women surviving than you need men. That basically means that you can keep a society going with 1,000 men and 100,000 women. In other words: a mainly female society.
If we’re going to strip away everything except for the sole required functions of species survival - food, water, procreation - it’d actually make more sense to say that men are solely sperm donors than that women are solely birth givers. Evolutionarily speaking, women are the ones directly in the process of giving birth, nurturing, etc. That’s not to say that men are just there for sperm, but THAT would make more sense than saying women were just there to give birth. As for everything else that happens throughout life, such as hobbies and jobs, women are just as capable as men. 
I never understood why people said things like “women were made as helpers to men” but then said “women’s role is to care for the kids & men’s role is to protect women and children.” like, um? who’s the helper in that situation if, according to you, the male is a secondary person protecting other people?
So yeah. You’re trying to use pregnancy as a way to say that women are inferior to men, but you’re sadly mistaken.
*Gendered language because this is a sexist issue (saying that women are inferior to men bc pregnancy, which has actually been a common claim in patriarchal societies)

Lmao anti-feminists kill me
